Instructor Development

Fire/EMS · Week 6
Wednesday, November 30, 2022
11:00 AM EST / 8:00 AM PST

The webinar series presents the 8-Hour Training Tactics for the Modern Fire Service course through one lesson a week. Each one-hour presentation will provide an overview of a single module of the course and present concepts related to the presented topic. Each presentation will also demonstrate how each concept can be applied using an LMS. As you complete each webinar session, you will be provided with a certificate of module completion and allowed access to an asynchronous version of the course module to share with their members.

Instructors are the core of the fire service training program. The best training methodology and curriculum will fall short of training goals in the absence of good fire service instructors. In this webinar, we will demonstrate methods for developing fire instructors to their greatest potential using a combination of preparedness, coaching ability, and presentation skill. The webinar presents methods for applying an LMS to develop, sharpen and improve instructor ability.
